Match Report Round 15 Men’s Reserve Grade Northern Storm vs. Boambee
A tough game today at the Cove for our boys with cold howling winds. The lads new it would be a close game and were ready for the action. The first half we played with the wind in our faces making it difficult to keep the ball forward but in the 4th minute of the half a cross from the winger Paul Malith had Salvador and Jade scramble. Jade Porter got a foot on the ball and scored his first goal for the year well done Jade. Boambee kept up their attack but the storm held them out with some great defence. The Storm would counter attack only to be repelled by the Boambee defence what a great tussle the first half was.
In the second half the game was much the same but the Storm seemed to lose a bit of structure in the mid field making it difficult to go on the attack and in the 15th minute a cracker of a goal from Boambee number 16 Hank Bus levelled the score after a Laps in concentration from the Storm defence following an interchange. I believe this game was just what the Storm needed they showed today they can play a full 90 minutes and keep attacking till the final whistle.
This is the true grit we will need to take into the finals a never give up attitude the lads showed today they have got it. Man of the match today is David Poverello well done Dave. Special thanks this week to young Cooper Poverello for attending the game 1 week after being born he is our number one supporter a true stormer thanks Dave and Amy. We would also like to thank Widdow and his wife Linda for the help with the bbq and clean up at the end of the day. Well done to Boambee for a great 1 all draw see you in the finals.
